FO SHO you need to come to OHR this Friday! If you liked GSS the other day, then OHR will make you giddy!

OHR is every bit as technical as GSS, but it has elevation changes and blind corners, it's a blast to ride.

Get your CMRA license and we'll go to OHR and drag Jody's azz up there too.

Once you ride OHR and Cresson, you'll see GSS and the Mercedes Benz track in a whole different light...

Technical is cool, but technical with elevation and cambered corners rulz.

I wish, but the deal is with the CMRA that we can hold the practice days only, I don't think they'll let us do a regular track day- not sure what the agreement is.

Besides, I'm sure we can coerce you in to getting your racing license to represent the female contingent in the CMRA, right? There aren't a whole lot of women racers left 'round here!
